Posts Tagged ‘Viktor & Rolf’

Who knew violins could take so much milage in fashion? Viktor & Rolf did it. Now ThreeAsFour…. I personally like violins and actually have a violin brooch I bought a while back from Etsy. There’s something somber and snobby about the violin… also it can turn quickly into a hillybilly  hoe down if need be. It’s so versatile! Honestly, these violins look out of place on the garment, as if the model is on their way to a gig or something and needed a free hand. That first outfit is perfect for those subway musicians… it’s like one hand plays, one hand collects money. That last dress looks totally like intestines. I rate this collection FUG.

This season’s Viktor & Rolf show was spectacular, as usual. Taking inspiration from menswear, particularly men’s dress shirts, each piece maintained a feminine quality, while displaying masterful techniques with the common dress shirt. Maison Martin Margiela should seriously pay attention to Viktor &Rolf and see how it’s done. That last dress totally belongs in a museum!  That’s a lot of cufflinks to shop for! I would take one of each and wear that to a boardroom! Brill-i-ant!

I love love love Viktor & Rolf ! Check out this multi -layered coat that must weigh more than a fat 6th grader. It reminds me of those nesting Russian dolls that I love dearly. The use of stiff tulle still echoes through this season. Check out the gown in the second photo- you could totally hip-check the crap out someone with minimal effort. I like that. Victor and Rolf seem like the kind of dudes that want you to touch their monkey. I mean every episode of  ‘Sprockets’ is probably on their iPod touch. With that being said, Victor & Rolf can do wrong in my book!

Here are a few looks from the Central Saint Martin’s fashion show featuring designs from this year’s graduates. I see visions of Viktor & Rolf, Klaus Nomi, Avatar, marshmallows, and the (Tr)Olsen Twins in this collective. Now we know what goes on in their dorm rooms. Something involving those listed. Anyway, I actually think I like the puffy, cloud outfit… I would wear that on a plane so I can rest my head on the puffs of awesomeness during the flight. And one can never have too many arm warmers (first photo)- love those! The white boxy cape (third photo) is perfect for cleptos. You could totally jack a microwave with that coat on.

I really liked this collection because it was really feminine, edgy and modern all at the same time. The purple dress in the second photo is just gorgeous! Reminds me of a more toned down Viktor & Rolf dress. The Mongolian lamb fur in the first photo looks so fluffy and soft…sort of like my cat. Anything that reminds me of my cats in a big plus in my book. I really don’t know what’s up with the lampshade, though. I guess it goes with the edgy territory. Givenchy really impressed me this season.

Viktor & Rolf ‘s Spring 2010 collection  had a cheeky take on the current state of the economy- cut backs on the ball gown. I thought it was remarkably done and once again proves the Dutch duo are  geniuses stuck in clones of Dieter’s body. I love the use of tulle in anything! It reminds me of a ballerina, princess, or fairy. Yes, my taste still reflects a 4 year old girl’s fashion sense. I still shop at Gymboree. For myself. Anyway, the show must have spectacular with Róisín Murphy (the women Lady Gaga supposedly steals her looks from) performing during the show. Looking at these photos, try to picture the bolts and bolts of tulle used to create ONE dress- amazing!

The dynamic design duo known as Viktor & Rolf showed their Spring 2009 in a interesting way. There was no audience, front row snobs or tough doormen. They showed their collection via the internet shot with one model , Shalom Harlow. In a time of tough economy, the way they presented their show may be the beginning of a new wave of designers to follow. On to the actual designs, may of the dresses took four weeks to make including the organza rills. I personally think this collection is super fug, but I can appreciate the time and effort it went into making these unusual frocks. Viktor & Rolf have always been daring and the creator of the new look, sihouette or fabric. For that , they have my utmost respect.
